  • The Drop
  • The Drop (R)

    James Gandolfini, in his last movie role, plays the mobbed-up owner of a Brooklyn workingman's bar, but the more impressive performance here comes from Tom Hardy as his younger cousin, a guileless soul who tends bar and worries that they've gotten themselves in too deep. more...

    A factory owner is found dead, and the finger of guilt passes from one occupant of his glamorous home to another: his coolly fashionable wife (Catherine Deneuve), his willful daughters (Virginie Ledoyen and Ludivine Sagnier), his morally loose sister (Fanny Ardant), his miserly mother-in-law (Danielle Darrieux), his neurotic sister-in-law (Isabelle Huppert), and the home's two domestics (Firmine Richard and Emmanuelle Beart). more...

  • End of Watch (R)

    I'm not sure who appointed David Ayer poet laureate for the LAPD, but at least he takes the job seriously; along with the usual mean-streets bluster and brutality, his cop-thriller screenplays (Training Day, Dark Blue) conscientiously record the hardening effects of a thankless and frequently pointless job. more...
  • Eve's Bayou (R)

    Unlike most stories that allude to incest, this intriguingly fractured 1997 narrative acknowledges the complexity of the faddish topic. more...
  • Exit Through the Gift Shop (R)
